A THIXENDALE business has added a corporate gifting service in response to the shop local trend.

The team at Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil and Charlie & Ivy’s witnessed a significant upturn in online sales during the last lockdown as people were trying to support small, family-run businesses.

Of the decision to offer a gifting service to business customers for the first time, Jennie Palmer, head of marketing and design, said: “There is currently a real appetite for people to support local businesses and we’d like to build on this with our corporate gift options.

“For companies looking to reward employees and team members or to thank clients for their business, we can offer bespoke packages featuring a mix of Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil and Charlie & Ivy’s products and brand them up for a professional finish and a memorable gift.

“From a simple £6 combo to a luxurious hand-packed wicker hamper, we work with you to put together something delicious to fit your budget.”

Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil was established in 2008 by Adam and Jennie Palmer on their farm in the Yorkshire Wolds. They produce a range of oils, dressings and mayonnaise. For details, phone 01759 369573.
